Barbara Loe Fisher on Parents Needing to Be Informed About the Risks of Vaccination

It’s really important for mothers, when they’re going to vaccinate their children, they’ve got to get informed about the risks of the diseases, the risks of the vaccines, and take that information in to their doctor and be able to have a conversation… which is becoming increasingly difficult with doctors.

[Doctors] don’t want to have that conversation, and they’re often throwing parents out of their offices if they ask questions or refuse even one of the 72 doses of 17 vaccines that doctors are telling mothers to give to their children today. That’s three times the number of vaccinations my children got in the 1980s.

Parents need to understand that vaccines carry risks that can be greater for some people than others, because we’re not all the same. We’re born with different genetic influences, epigenetic influences, environmental influences. And so it should be an individualized policy, because this one size fits all approach is very dangerous for those of us who are more susceptible to vaccine damage.
